Spoiler Saturday--Soviet Spider-Slayer Slaughter!

You all may remember when J. Jonah Jameson would use a "Spider-Slayer" robot to try and take down Spider-Man, right?

Well, what you probably didn't realize was where he got the inspiration:

Why, sure, that may be the disembodied, computerized mind of former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt inside a Soviet robot body, but make no mistake:

He is a slayer, all right!

And unlike Jonah, there's an army of hammer-and-sickle-wielding FDR death-bots:

I said an army!!

And yes, that is Albert Einstein and Richard Feynman gunning down a horde of FDR-controlled robots. Except, of course, that's not Albert Einstein, that's an evil Albert Einstein from an alternate universe.

So, yes, you should be reading The Manhattan Projects.
